I Think I'm Digging The Teen Years

I exited the bathroom with a scowl on my face and bumped into Allegra in the hallway.

Allegra: What's wrong, Mom?

Me: I just started my stinkin' period.

A few years ago she would have ran away screaming "OH GROSS MOM!" but today she said, " Awwwww," and stepped towards me with arms open for a big hug of understanding.

I like her a lot.

As a mom of 2 daughters (15 and almost 13), I totally identify with your post. I love being the mom of girls.

Well, I think that will never happen in this house.

Maybe we should adopt. :)
